It is much more common for progressive gays to ostracize other gays for being conservative than it is for Christians to ostracize gays for being gay. This is a reality that is well known to conservative gays, or even gays who question the radical leftist politics embraced by activist gays.
Case in point, two successful gay businessmen hosted Senator Ted Cruz for dinner at their Manhattan apartment. The gay activist left was so incensed by this abominable breach of protocol that they canceled an AIDS Benefit the two men were involved with, purely out of hatred and spite.
It is with regret that we have decided to cancel this year’s edition of the Broadway Bares Solo Strips fundraiser, which was scheduled for May 10 at the NYC club 42West. We cannot in good conscience hold an event at a venue whose owners have alienated our community.
The Gay Activist Left is also calling for a boycott of their businesses as punishment for them reaching out to conservatives.
Update: Ted Cruz has issued a statement. Here is a quote:
“I know it’s been a long time since we’ve seen it, but this is what it means to truly be a ‘big tent Republican’ instead of a panderer. I’m happy to go anywhere to anyone to champion conservative values.”
Read the full quote at the Washington Examiner if you choose to brave the popups.
The Activist Left cannot tolerate anyone acting independently or showing any capacity for individual thought.
